I offer online video and audio calls for counselling currently due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Usually I work from my cosy therapy room in South Birmingham offering face to face and video call therapy depending on your preference. There is free parking nearby the office for those who wish to visit.
I have also authored a self help book “The I In Me- Who Am I Anyway” which is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle Ebook versions. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08DKZLQYW/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_api_N34qFb2B2XTZV
Its a workbook with practical support, therapeutic techniques and soul searching questions all about identity and personality.
My first session
Our first session together will be very informal to allow us to get to know one another. You can ask me any questions you may have about the process, or myself as a therapist. We will then discuss what has brought you to counselling and any issues or concerns you have. Once we have an idea of what needs to be explored further we can make a start together to find your truth and overcome past, present and future worries.
